to see what the code number is. it is one of the recalled numbers, you should not buy them. however, you should not find any in maryland. here in maryland, you have to be registered with the department of agriculture. then the plants of the recall list are registered to sell eggs in maryland. -- none of the plants on the recall list are registered to sell eggs here. which richard about the beef recalled. what is that about? >> same sort of issue. all food manufacturers with new coke, they tried to avoid contamination when you clean and make certain they do not do anything to introduce microbes into the few. there are marked everywhere, on your hands, on this desk. we try to keep them away. in this case, some got through. when the detective a thing like that, the product is recalled. >> here is the problem. some people pay attention to the
9:33 am
recalls and some people keep this up in their freezer together. they may never have known that the meat or anything else has been recalled. what can you do to protect yourself? >> it really, pay attention. if we announce a recall, there's a reason why we did it. if you did not catch the details, we read a site called it will give you recalls on anything, but most importantly food. if you heard anything, you can go there and check. >> with all these recalls, it is becoming so common. is our food supply safe? the fda only has 925 inspectors nationwide. >> that is not much, but you

have to remember all 50 states are working for the fda. we do here in maryland. our food inspectors go out and do inspections on behalf of the fda. this is besides our own routine ones. yes, they have a small number of inspectors, but you have to add in players around the state. >> so we should go good about our food supply? >> it is among the said this -- safest in the world. it is demonstrated to be one of the safest food supplies in the world. why are you hearing this so much lately? science and technology has changed. if you watch things like "csi," we can now be the same thing with microbes. once upon a time when you separate from salmonella, things have got a little more sophisticated and we knew which substrate. now when you talk to specialists, they can rattle off
9:35 am
code numbers. that is part of the dna fingerprint of that particular outbreak and a contract that across the country through the computer networks. that is how they're put together. it is not that there are more outbreaks than there were, we are just better at detecting them. >> cook the food well. >> that normally works with most of the microbes. with a few of them like some of the e. coli strain,, that is one you really do not want to do anything with because the microbe reduces something that will make you sick. >> do not do it. >> it is simple. >> thank you for coming in. do not go away. here's a look at what is coming up on "meet the press."
